Hyderabad, Sep 11 (UNI) Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema are likely to receive widespread rainfall after September 13 with the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) predicting formation of an upper cyclonic circulation over west central Bay of Bengal after two days and it might develop into a low pressure subsequently.
However, the people would have to put up with the oppressive heat for two more days as a weak pressure gradient still persisted.

There would be no respite from the heat for Hyderabadis, who had been experiencing a summer-like situation with the mercury hovering two to three degree celsius above normal.
The Rayalaseema region so far had minus 28 per cent of normal rainfall, while it was -11 per cent in Telangana and -6 per cent in Coastal Andhra Pradesh, he added.
Isolated rain occurred over Telangana, while dry weather prevailed in coastal Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema in the last 24 hours.
Medak and Nirmal (Adilabad dist) had rainfall of three cm each, Nizamsagar, Ramayampet, Utnoor one each.
